And as for religion, I really don't see how talking to an imaginary being in the sky would help me. Even if god was real, my ego would never be so large as to entertain the notion that whatever power created the universe would care about my petty problems.
i felt like that after my last break up i mean i still sometimes do, but i got school now, got a lot of videogames, new music and i get laid but im still sad and shit don't worry, you'll get better too. i have been crying almost every night for the past three months and been depressed as shit, getting better now tho.
u got molested as a child or something? some pastt trauma?
real talk Moops, i know we had our differences n shit (n hopefully u prolly understood it was never ever meant to be taken seriously, especially whatever type of comment i may have made in any way, it was all tongue in cheek) but i f u allow me to be serious 4 this one moment, i'll tell u this.
It's most likely probable that what you are undergoing is simply temporary, considering you're what? 16-17? N that may or may not be normal, but it does happen to teens more often than not. It becomes a problem when you do feel that way if you're in your early 20s and have been feeling that way for a quite a while
Originally posted by Inactive User, n i don't know if you'll ever get to that point, hopefully not... From what i experienced, and still struggle with, the best way to cope with this is to mask it, disguise yourself. Are u having trouble socializing with people? Make the effort n socialize, ask about their day, talk about mainstream events n keep it casual. Doesn't matter if u do care about those people or not, it helps to keep up normative appearances. That's the external struggle: making that effort.
Originally posted by Inactive UserThe internal struggle is something much more difficult imo, but it gets somewaht easier over time. Like everybody else mentioned, hobbies n exercise are a great way to keep your mind busy. Learning another language helps too. Keeping an open mind towards other cultures is something that might pique your interests. You like writing, right? Keep a journal n write what's on your dome, short stories, thoughts etc.

As far as we know, we only have one life to live (i could die 2nite from a big ass earthquake like some of the unfortunate Japanese, who knows?, n if we were to spend the rest of our lives stressing ourselves out on trivialities it would only result on much wasted time that could've been directed at something old people regret not doing when they were young.

Originally posted by Inactive UserWhen your alone feed your mind with books, i came to the conclusion that i'll never be that happy go lucky guy but rather resemble that nameless narrator from notes from the underground. And I'm ok with that because, after all, I'm still living.
I want to see the world burn
All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC
establish goals, and accomplish them. Just like set a long term plan for the person you want to be and make little steps to becoming that person. Every time you accomplish a single goal, make one of those single steps, just take that as proof that you can do it and motivate yourself to keep going. Busy = Happy. I like literally used to feel the same way and I realized that those feelings come from being directionless, feeling like your day-to-day life isn't going to amount to anything, but if you just realize that thats where the depression is stemming from you can alleviate it by just maintaining positivity.
Also, this is important, SURROUND YOURSELF WITH OTHER MOTIVATED DRIVEN PEOPLE. It doesn't matter if they're into the same shit as you or not but just being around other inspired busy people will rub off on your own demeanor and you'll just spend the time focusing on your plans for the future (and how to make them a reality) as opposed to just wallowing in self-pity.
Wow you sound like me. I have the same feelings and thoughts that you are having. I have distanced myself from my family, friends, and others who care about me(long story). I don't really have a religion even though most of my family are Christians(BRAINWASHED!) and I can't pick up chicks for shit.
At the end of the day, the only thing that really helps me is marijuana. It may not be for you but I feel like it keeps me level headed and gives me a focus that I never had. Now I have a really good job that I didn't even think I would get, getting ready to purchase a car at the end of the month(and more pot), and even take a trip to SC for bike week.
Really, I just stopped caring about a lot of stuff. I mean a lot of stuff. Religion...IDGAF, what my family thinks of me...IDGAF, what people think of me...(you already know)ETC, ETC. Just my two cents *Kanye Shrug*.
Yo I didn't read all these pages so idk if its been advised yet, but what you need is fucking change, and maybe some meds. I felt the same way spring semester 2010, i dropped all my classes besides one, lived in my dorm and stopped feeling like kicking it with my nigs. All I did was order myself pizzas, watch tv, sleep, piss in empty bottles, and not feel horny. Took me a few months to stop being a pussy then I told my nigs and my fam the deal, went back to boston for the summer, got a job, started kicking it again, hit up my doctor, got on some anti-depressant meds (helped a lot) and its been mostly uphill or atleast steady from there.
The two most helpful things, change of scenery and keeping it 100 with your most important peoples. Through being honest with myself and others that I felt I couldn't take care of shit like a man, I actually manned the fuck up. "knowing im weak is when im really being strong."
glad that u got back on your feet. but me, i just can't be proactive right now. i can't really explain why, but my mind just fogs up and "mutes" the aspects of my mind that could make myself better, including my "drive" and my "motivation", and i find it hard to do different shit.
